Back in June, Nick Cave performed a special solo show in the West Hall of London’s Alexandra Palace, which was filmed by cinematographer Robbie Ryan (Marriage Story, American Honey) and broadcast as a livestream event on July 23, under the title Idiot Prayer - Nick Cave Alone At Alexandra Palace.

An extended cut of the event will now be screen globally in cinemas on November 5, and Cave has previewed the screenings with the release of a new video featuring the previously unreleased Euthanasia, written during the sessions for his 2016 album Skeleton Tree, and first heard during the online streaming event.
